ebbf tools to accompany you

Probably the most common question we hear at ebbf is: how can I take and actually implement in my workplace and in my community some of the ‘work changing’ concepts I’ve just experienced during an ebbf learning event, reading an ebbf publication or viewing an ebbf presentation?
This is usually an indication that the individual has decided to travel along what we call the ‘Values Path’ and ebbf aims to accompany you along that path of increasing positive influence.

You can also take part in these two ebbf campaigns

about the event

action labs

Be involved in the creation of knowledge and in the active building of your learning community, learn how to implement and develop local ebbf events. Your ebbf experience can now be extended beyond the time and place of the ebbf international learning events; you can bring the spirit and momentum of ebbf events to your own local communities all year round.

Action labs are a specific format of local events, that are designed in a series: starting with meaningful conversations they focus on taking action, while creating a cycle of consultation, action and reflection. These learning cycles will help you create your own local learning communities. Becoming an EBBF member is stepping onto a path of learning: learning to embed values within oneself, to apply them in everyday situations, to share them with colleagues, friends and wider audiences and to seek to understand how doing this all fits into the larger picture.

breakfast meetings

The most simple way in which to re-create the dynamics and “meaningful conversations” of an ebbf event, is to organise or take part in your own local “ebbf breakfast” (or lunch or evening …) all you need is a theme relevant to your audience, a comfortable location in which to hold the conversation, someone to ignite the conversation with a 15 minute introduction to the theme and a good facilitator to allow the meaningful conversations to flow.

creating your dream enterprise

HAVE YOU… Been dreaming about starting your own business? You want your business to fit you like a tailor made suit. You want to do in your business what you love doing most: contribute positively to society whilst generating a healthy income. Looking to balance making a positive difference to other people’s lives, to our society, to the environment, to our world and enjoying a financially sustainable living?

The only reasons why you did not start yet might be that: you did not have a concrete business idea, or you did not have a clear idea about what first steps were needed, or you did not feel like doing it alone, or you simply never took the time to make it happen. If you really want to make it happen, this is your opportunity! Ebbf in collaboration with the Business Launch Portal of ebbf member Monique Blokzyl, has worked with ebbf members Jahan Tavangar and Eva Yazhari to evolve the very successful “creating your dream enterprise” series into a 12-week program to get your dream enterprise started.

corporate learning experiences

We live in an increasingly interconnected world. Organizations that remain isolated, detached from society are less likely to succeed.  Connecting companies around a purpose that is higher than themselves, having them connect with and contribute to the needs of society not only ensures a meaningful work environment. It gives them the legitimacy to remain in business, to be accepted by society and to thrive at unexpected levels.

The ebbf corporate training program allows organizations (small or big) to train individuals in developing insights and skills that can be implemented. As much as we believe in inspiration, we have more faith in experimentation. Learning by doing: through actions in our day-to-day working lives and by addressing subjects in meaningful conversations with the people around us. This corporate training program offers a seven step path, that helps organizations to implement new insight in their transformational path towards the future.
